YayaToure Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure has signed a new four-year contract with the Premier League club.

The deal will keep the Ivory Coast international at the Etihad Stadium until 2017.

“This is where I want to be,” the 29-year-old told the club website.

“I will never forget how I have been treated here by the fans, the club and the owners and nothing would give me greater pleasure than to finish my career as a Manchester City player.”

Toure joined City from Barcelona for a reported £24m in 2010, having helped the Spanish giants win the Champions League title a year earlier.

The box-to-box midfielder has since been an integral member of Roberto Mancini‘s side, scoring the winning goal in the 2011 FA Cup final and a crucial double against Newcastle United last May to keep the eventual Premier League champions in the title hunt. read more
